What distinguishes me as a teacher is my ability to understand the child's specific needs in his or her academic, and I tailor my teaching methods to fulfill each child's academic potential and individual goals.
My personal experiences has exposed me to the fact that of best results are achieved when a child's confidence is built about the subjects and also if there is a good rapport between student and teacher.
I have helped many struggling students achieve their choice grades, I am firm, friendly and committed to my work. I have an innovative capacity to ensure that impressive results are achieved from my students.
I hope to instill a genuine interest in the subjects! Once that interest is sparked it becomes much easier for students to motivate themselves, a skill which will help them extract as much joy as possible from all their future learning.
I believe it is equally important to instill a sense of organisation into my students. Not just in the practical sense of effective note taking and filing but also in relation to a students ability to organize their own thoughts.
A well organised mind is much more adept at problem solving because it grants students the ability to take a step back and see the bigger picture.
I help my students to do this by talking often and in depth with them about problem solving in general and how we can apply the same techniques across a huge range of subjects and questions.
It has often been said that education is less about learning facts by rote and more about training yourself to think about the world in a different (and hopefully more useful) way.
I also like to engage my students in conversations that take us well beyond the sometimes restrictive syllabus.
